How funny it is when the owner of one of these monsters gets attacked!:)

Why would any one try to breed these people killers and put the rest of society in harms way?

These are drug dealers/thugs dogs and in the hood they call them ghetto ponies!

When will these breeds be outlawed? They have no use as pets. Pick from one of the 200 or so other breeds.

Well this is sad. But better the owner then some defenseless 6 year old walking down the street or ringing the door bell on Halloween.

Maybe the state of FloriDUH will get off its collective ass and ban these animals.

She got what was coming. Raising pit bulls is like delayed suicide. She probably has tattoos, smoked pot, and lived in a trailer that stinks of dogs.

Why are so many people drawn to having pitbulls? When there are so many well bred, homeless dogs, that may have to be euthanized at the shelters. I do agree they should be banned here in Florida, before anyone else is killed. My heart goes out to the woman's family.

First off, for all the ignorant uneducated people out their just blogging away, lets sit back and look at the big picture. Any responsible dog owner, pit-bull or otherwise, knows that some foul play was involed here. No dog is just going to attack their owners for no reason, especially not a pit-bull. All these other incidents of people getting mauled is from abuse and whatever else these beautiful dogs are put through. Its terrible such a good dog has such a bad rep because of people like Mike Vick who have no morals and or ethics. Pathetic.....
One last thing, I bet nobody commenting before me owns or has owned a pit-bull. Because if they did Im sure they would be singing a different tune.

No doubt! If the owner isn't even safe, then who is?

But MY pit bulls would never hurt anyone...

But MY pit bulls are great with kids...

But its the owners not the dogs..

But its the one not trained...

But MY pit bulls would never turn...

Everyone knows these dogs can turn on a dime no matter how trained no matter who owns

It's not a question of ignorance it's a question of innocent people getting mauled and killed by what else but pit bulls and also the dumb ass people who allow their dogs of any breed to run loose and attack these innocent people, they need to be held responsible and accountable for their pets actions. And many years ago my dear friend age 62 purchased a new German Shepard puppy to replace one who died from old age, she spoiled her puppy and loved him very much, at age 2 he attacked her severely while she was kissing him, he was never ever abused, why who knows what goes through their small minds.

As I see here, and many times i have you blame the owner. When actually PItbulls are untamable animals as you can see. Taking in a pitbull is like bringing a Bear into your home....once again another person was killed from not understanding this meaning

I hate pitt Bulls,rottwillers,dobermans chows and Shepherd.
My daughter was attacked when she was three years old by a rottweiller. I tore her muscle out in her small leg and once it tasted blood it grabbed her by the head and shook her like a wet rag. Scalped her.
I feel for the womans family but with everyone posting such horrible comments that she deserved it. It saddens me. No one deserves to die in such a horrible way. I do agree that these vicious animals should be outlawed though and anyone caught with them fined a HEFTY FEE

You people should be ashamed of yourselves. This woman is dead. A life now in eternity and all you have to say here is critisism. Shame on each and everyone of immoral pompass behinds.

I am absolutely shocked that life caries that little of value to you! Shame on you!
